The Advanced Tab
We've kept the Advanced settings to the bare minimum:
1. Bounce email address
MailPoet will redirect bounce messages to this email address. Read more about bounce messages.
For reasons explained in the link above, if you are sending with your own website/web server, we highly suggest you use an email address from the same domain as your website.
2. Newsletter task scheduler
This option allows you to choose the method by which MailPoet will manage your sending queue. Read more about this.
3. Role and capabilities
This isn't an option rather it's a recommendation that if you wish to fine tune user permission for MailPoet you can do so using the Members plugin.
4. Open and click tracking
Want MailPoet to collect statistics for you, such as how many newsletters were opened, links were clicked or the number of subscriptions canceled? If so, you should definitely use this option.
Why shouldn't you use this option?
- You are using a third-party service to send your newsletters and this service already tracks your links
- You are experiencing redirection issues with your MailPoet links. Sometimes, disabling link tracking will fix this issue.
5. Stop Sending to Inactive Subscribers
This option allows you to set how quickly a subscriber should be considered inactive after going X number of months without opening or clicking a newsletter. While this feature can be turned off, we highly recommend leaving it enabled. Read more about this option.
6. Share anonymous data
By sharing your data anonymously with us, you can help the MailPoet team understand how people use MailPoet and what sort of features they like (and don't like.) Find out more.
7. Enable reCAPTCHA
This option allows you to enable Google reCAPTCHA to protect your MailPoet signup forms from automated bots. Read more about this option.
8. Reinstall from scratch
Wait a minute! Be very careful with this option. If you activate it, it will completely remove all your existing newsletters, subscribers, lists and settings from your MailPoet. You will not be able to recover them. If you need to use this option, be sure to first back up your database and export your newsletters and subscribers.
This option allows you to enable varying levels of logging, either all, errors only or no logging at all. The logs are stored in your database and are primarily used by our support staff to help diagnose and debug issues.
